Autogenerating a suffix number

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have a field where the user currently enters a product code into a text box, made up of 4 letters, and then 3 numbers. I need the 3 number part to be automatically generated. How can i do this? I haven't written a script before, but can easily learn as i have a good knowledge of programming functions in other applications. Or maybe it is a simple text control. Thanks in advance.

This is a calculation problem.

Create a new number field, and set its entry options to auto-enter a serial number.

Then, you can create a new calc field "dsp_ProductCode" = Product Code & SerialID.

Don't use this field as a key. Use the serialID as the primary key.
